The Lott unites Australia’s Official Lotteries by Tatts, Tatts NT, NSW Lotteries, Golden Casket and SA Lotteries. Each year the Lott makes dreams come true for our players. And with your help, we play an important role in helping to support Australian communities.
The signs are everywhere. When Australia dreams, we all win.
Last year, Australia’s Official Lotteries contributed over $1.1 billion to help support community initiatives like in hospitals, schools and sporting groups.
More than $2 Billion prizes paid last year
Nearly double that amount was won by lottery players last financial year. This included more than 415 division one prize winners# and 203 new millionaires in Australia. This isn’t surprising, seeing approximately 60 cents of every dollar you spend on lotteries goes back into prizes for players~.
Supporting over 3800 small businesses
